Use the Modular content element to build content from multiple content items. For example, it is suitable for the following scenarios:
- Creating larger content items composed of smaller content items. For example, you can build landing pages by repeating content items.
- Relating content that belongs together. For example, you have an author’s bio that you want to include at the end of the individual blog posts.
The following video shows how you can link content together with modular content.
Build larger pages
You can build a home page or a landing page from multiple content items. In this case, each Modular content element is used for content items of a single content type to make the organization and further work easier.
For each Modular content element, you can assign existing content items as content modules or create new ones directly.
In the example below, there are 2 content items of the type Hero Unit assigned to the Hero unit Modular content element of our homepage. When editing content types, you can choose to limit the number and type of content items for each Modular content element.
TIP: You can use modular content for testimonials, product features, etc. Another advantage of modular content element is that you can re-order items as you need.
Link content together in rich text
Sometimes, you might want to have content modules directly in the text of your article. For example, the modules can represent YouTube videos and you want them to be in the certain spots of the article.
To do that, use the rich-text editor to insert content modules directly into the Rich text elements.
